The Well Project's Coverage of AIDS 2020: Virtual and HIV2020 Online

Submitted on Jul 27, 2020


For a variety of reasons, the 23rd International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2020) was a radically different event this year. In addition to being an entirely virtual gathering, there was controversy around the conference from the moment it was announced at AIDS 2018. Community members protested it being held in the San Francisco Bay Area, on U.S. soil, during a repressive U.S. administration that posed clear danger to numerous members of our global community – among other issues. These concerns gave rise to an entirely separate conference organized by global community advocates, HIV2020, which is ongoing online through October and free to participants.

Of course, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic had a major impact on both conferences, rendering them virtual and digital. Participants and speakers logged into the global conferences across time zones from their homes or near-empty offices instead of gathering together in person.

The Well Project is pleased to offer highlights on topics of interest and importance to our community from both conferences compiled by members of The Well Project team and Community Advisory Board. We will continue to add content to this page, so please check back often!
